Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has debunked the insinuations making the rounds that he (Fayose) is planning to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congresse (APC).
Vanguard reports that the former governor was reacting to a statement by the APC in Ekiti State that he was not qualified to join the party.
Speaking through his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, said “it is funny that the APC in Ekiti State lied and went further to react to its own lies.”
Fayose who described the APC as a coronavirus infected party, said someone of his status and pedigree can never contemplate joining the party.
Olayinka who posited that there was nothing to attract any right-thinking politician to the APC, asked; “is it the killings and kidnappings going on across the country? Is it the pariah State that Nigeria has become such that USA had to place the country on visa restrictions? Is it the huge debt the country has been plunged into? Or is it the directionless state of the country?
“Is it the sacking of over 3,000 workers by the non-performing APC government in Ekiti State?”
Olayinka admonished the APC in the state to focus its attention on its non-performing government, as he described the report of Fayose’s threat to join APC should his adopted candidate for the state chairmanship of the PDP, Hon Bisi Kolawole, fails in the forthcoming State Congress as figment of the imagination of those peddling it.
“The story of Fayose’s threat to leave PDP for the APC is one of the lies from the APC factory of lies and it is even more childish that the party in Ekiti State went ahead to react to its own lies,” he said.
